What is the best book on logic for prep?

Postby nycparalegal » Tue Feb 09, 2010 12:57 pm

I got a 164 in October, and applied to a bunch of law schools (wasted a shitload of money); however, I'm not entirely happy with my acceptances and/or merit aid. So I am re-taking in June.

I typically get the following:

0-3 wrong on logic games
3-4 wrong on reading comprehension
6-12 wrong on logic reasoning

I took every test and was getting between 163 - 168.

I've re-ordered the last 12 lsats for prep. In the mean time, I'd like to read a really good book on logic.

Has anyone read a book that they found really helpful?

I think i've seen "The Logic of Real Arguments", "Logic made easy", and "Informal Logic" mentioned.

I really just want to read one book. Any thoughts?

I'm sick of the logical reasoning bible for now. I think I'm going to use it as a source when I review my mistakes. In the meantime, I wanted to read a book until I get my tests from LSAC.

judging by your name, I'm sure you're no longer in undergrad, however if you can take a class, I'd strongly suggest it. It's worth it just alone for the informal logic section on flawed reasoning.
